  1. Thank you! I will obviously have to test my reaction and see if there is a notable change in my health before making any solid decisions. I've also considered being tested for celiac disease but as I've already cleared my system of gluten, I'm terrified of the Gluten Challenge that is required to show reaction.
  2. Hi. 3 months ago, I quit gluten cold turkey because I'd suspected that my mother might have Celiac Disease and that it could also be the cause of my malnutrition as well and I wanted to see if a gluten free diet would make a difference. 7 days in, I went through wheat withdrawal, and it was the worst thing I'd ever experienced. The brain fog, the fatigue, the devil of headaches, etc. It lasted 3 days before it finally let up. I haven't touched pharmaceutical medicine in 3 1/2 years and the pain was so terrible that I actually considered Advil. My question is this: if I choose to "cheat" on my diet and consume gluten once or twice here and there, will I experience this withdrawal again? I have never been diagnosed with any sort of gluten intolerance, but have noticed a change for the better in my health. I ask this because as many of you probably know, the cravings get so bad sometimes and I feel like treating myself every now and then.. but not if it will hurt me! Please respond with any of your experiences with this issue or any information you might have on it, based on my situation. Thank you!
